Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that BYU QB Taysom Hill "turned in an incredible workout" during Friday's pro day.
Hill hasn't much been part of the draft conversation to date, but the aged quarterback's athletic testing on pro day might draw him a bit more interest down the stretch. Among the numbers turned in by the 6-foot-2, 221-pounder, a 40-yard dash of 4.44 seconds, a 38.5-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-2 broad jump. For context's sake, at the Combine those marks would have respectively ranked first (unseating Trevor Knight's 4.54-second 40), first (sorry again, Trevor -- Knight led Combine QB's with a 35.5-inch vertical) and third for quarterbacks. While Hill turns 27 in August and has a complicated (to put it kindly) medical history which could easily put him on the outside looking in when it comes to the draft, these strong testing results are a reminder that he has never lacked for athleticism.

What he's been asked to overcome is astounding. Hill suffered four season-ending injuries during his time in Provo, Utah, which included a knee injury, broken leg, a Lisfranc fracture and an hyperextended elbow.

Even so, the Idaho native finished his career with 6,929 passing yards and his 2,815 rushing yards rank fifth in the school's history. He added 75 total touchdowns and ran for more scores than any other BYU quarterback.

Hill's talent is undeniable. Since he entered the collegiate ranks in 2012, he was one of the college football's most dynamic quarterbacks. His body simply let him down.

It sounds like he's a great athlete........but a little too injury prone. I hope that's behind him.
